    Unhappy Confusing multi-network mess

    I realised too late that I have too many networks. It seems every time I added a machine it set up it's own network too - half wired & half wireless!
    Not all of the computers/etc., show up on any single one and in trying to sort out the mess I have now got thoroughly confused (from knowing only a little to start with).

    What I would like to do is erase all traces of all networks wired and wireless and start again from scratch. but I can't see any way of even listing them never mind erasing them, if they are not active they seem to disappear.
    I have a WHS setup, Cable router and switch. Vista Ultimate, 7 Ultimate and 7 Business, 2 x 7 Basic and a media server, Printer, and Wii, Net radio plus a HTC phone and no idea of what I'm doing any more.

    Please can someone tell me how to kill them all? Thanks

    If you open the Network and Sharing Center, select Manage Wireless Networks. You can highlight and delete the wireless networks here. If you choose Manage Adapters, you might be able to delete the ethernet adapter here. Win 7 should rebuild the adapter upon reboot. A Google search shows many articles on setting up your network.

    Thank you for that tip, Agreed, there are many leads for setting up, but I failed to find anything on deleting - except for you. Thanks
